debate. mitt romney thinks it's fair to pay a smaller tax rate than americans who earn $50,000 a year? you like that? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> what's your big idea? >> freedom. >> now we know. mitt romney loves freedom and he loves his low tax rate. >> you think it is fair? >> yeah, i think it's the right way to encourage economic growth. >> tonight, richard wolf on mitt romney's definition of fair and dean baker on romney's ability to game the tax code with chinese investments. >> my expectation would be in the crunch in october, governor romney is going to be for todd aiken. >> republicans turn to newt gingrich to try to save todd aiken in missouri and save the senate. howard fineman has the latest. >> it turns out he stacked the crowd with supporters. it's not the first time. >> i do love that music. i have to tell you. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. mitt romney tried to create a distraction from his 47% comments. instead he gave himself more headaches. friday afternoon the romney campaign released the 2011 tax returns. the romneys pai

indicated is to do the tax reform that broadens the base and includes more taxpayers along the way for the question that david asked earlier that cells in the deductions and exclusions and then reduces tax rates. you can do it and make it simpler so they don't have to have a feeling account to do that. .. >> people who have made investment decisions based upon the tax code, and to just all the sudden change it would be unfair. however, if people want a simple tax code with fewer deductions or no deductions whatsoever and fill it out on one sheet of paper, multiply it by whatever the tax rate is, let the taxpayers decide. this is an idea i've advocated for many years. it's really what hong kong has done, and many of the people in hong kong with the freedom to choose flat tax went to the flat tax. for businesses, right now, our federal government imposes the worst in the world, 35% tax on job creating businesses in our country. the average is 25%. i advocate reducing it to 20% because i think america should be better than average. doing that will help create over 500,000 jobs a year.
of taxes and spending. it goes to governor clinton for a 2 minute question. it is asked by ann compton. >> governor clinton, can yo middle income families can be guaranteed a tax cut or what income level they can be guaraeed no tax increase. >> the tax increase figures in at $200,000 and above. >> they had their incomes go up while taxes down. middle class people defined as people with incomes as $52,000 and down had their incomes go down while th taxes went up in the reagan-bush years because of 6 increases in the payroll taxes. that is where it would trigger. >> there would be no tax increases below -- >> my plan, notwithstanding -- my plan igures in at family incomes of $200,000 and above andgive modest middlerelief to restore faespecially to people with incomes below in addition to that, the money i raise from upper monepeople, if they pay the same income on their income the same as american corporations do, they will give incentives back. i wt to give permant incentives back. a resource and development credit, a long term proposal for business and expansion. we have to have no mor
like medicare, you know, tax cuts for the rich, he has really been very forceful about contrasting his views on things with what he says are the views of the other side which is embracing the physician and the constituency who gets him in office. he doubled down and mobilizes his tools. he has tried to paint romney is an out of touch, pvate equity guy who would would not be one snowy white working-class person. i think the obama team realizes currently that there are some very offputting things about romney, which is all image. finally, we can't leave this without saying a word about republican performance. it has been designed, you might almost say. we sit down and try to optimize the things that you might say and raise concerns among independent voters. they probably couldn't have done much better. this, i think, reflects the way the republican party, to some extent has been captured by elements who are far away from the medium voter. and this type of approach to american society. it is far away from the political center. to some extent, delightfully honest about where today's gop is
. they basically think that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the very wealthiest, then -- don't boo. vote. vote. vote. >> we got one new idea. one thing he did not do in his first four years, he said he's going to do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes. and is there anybody who thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> no! >> no, his plan is to continue what he has done before, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate. the news hour's jim lehrer moderates from the university of denver. watch and engage with c-span, including our live debate preview at 7:00 p.m. eastern, the debate at 9:00, and post-debate, your reactions, calls, and emails and tweets. follow our live coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. >> september 11, 2001, was a day that changed my life forever. it changed america's life. i'm going to go through a power point presen
needs in missouri? would you work with the general assembly on a plan for a tax increase to raise revenue for transportation? would you help provide the leadership in pushing for a vote to raise needed revenue for transportation? >> well, we need to make better use of the tax dollars with god. i don't, you know, i guess there was a plan to expand on 70 and expand the interchanges and put in toll roads, turnout over to contractors and let them run it. i'm not sure that's the thing we should do first, you know, we have to maintain the roads we've got an obviously maintain the bridge is. but you know, keep the tax, the gas tax the way it is now and make more efficient use of the money we've got. maybe contract out more, more things. if you give the contractors a bonus for finishing early, that seems to work. so things like that we would do. >> jay nixon. >> thank you. we have a long history in this area and our state. we have a very large system. so as i came in, with the doing a couple things and are now in the process of implementing a sumo foer. the first was to expand the capacit
%. personal earnings after taxes per capita have gone up almost $3,000 in these 4 years. in 1980 -- or 1979, a person with a fixed income of $8,000 was $500 above the poverty line, and this maybe explains why there are the numbers still in poverty. by 1980 that same person was $500 below the poverty line. we have restored much of our economy. with regard to business investment, it is higher than it has been since 1949. so, there seems to be no shortage of investment capital. we have, as i said, cut the taxes, but we have reduced inflation, and for 2 years now it has stayed down there, not at double digit, but in the range of 4 or below. we believe that we had also promised that we would make our country more secure. yes, we have an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should unders

ryan and seemed ready to engage on the big stuff. medicare, entitlements, tax reform, national solvency, a restructured welfare state. he has since retreated to the small and safe and when you're behind, how far, safe is fatal. >> i don't think so. i think he has been running a very vigorous campaign. i think most people approve of his selection of paul ryan. it's tough. it's very difficult. >> why is he behind? >> i think he is behind because americans probably feel better than they did before jobs and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. but that is what it is. i think most americans will still be making
one thing he did not do in his first four years which is to raise taxes. >> look at that worship in paul ryan's eyes in that shot. >> among likely ohio voters president obama leads. no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. this map shows the results of recent battle ground state polls. the "washington post" notes quote, with ohio leaning his way, obama needs to win only 15 more electoral votes. while mitt romney campaigns against president obama, his staff is busy campaigning against the polls. >> look, ohio, there's still 42 days to go. we are in there by any stretch inside the margin of error in ohio. we trust our internal polls. i don't make any campaign decisions based on what i read in the "washington post". >> needless to say romney's staff would be happy to get into the specification of what their polls say or don't say if they had a poll showing mitt romney winning something but they obviously don't have any such polls. rush limbaugh's audience is of course distraught about what the polls are telling them. but rush is ready with an explanation for all of

of canada to warrant is really a tax on the ground? >> the more important question, paul, is that isn't the red line in the minds of the israeli? canada has been consistent in saying that we continue to encourage the international community, the united nations, to keep the pressure on the iranian regime, to pursue sanctions, to pursue them -- diplomatic pressure where and when we have the opportunity. unfortunately, those opportunities are becoming less and less obvious. they are less and less effective. the preferred option always will be and remains these alternatives to keeping the pressure on on iran to bring about more acceptable behavior. trying to shift to the attitude of this regime and their leadership has proven to be enormous the challenging. >> my question was do you or do you not endorsed the prime minister of israel's red line. >> the israelis are going to make their own decisions. they will consult with their allies. they will continue to signal clearly their alarm over the nuclear ambitions of iran. we will continue to work with them, but these are sovereign decisions.
as the candidates drill down on the economy. >> you think if we spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, all our problems are going to go away? >> his plan is the spluss, how did the first one go. how much of it did you get? it was cash for clunkers. did you get help from that? gwen: and duke it on foreign policy. >> i'm pretty certain there will be bumps in the road because in a lot of these places, the one organizing brell has been islam. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. [laughter] >> yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. gwen: the candidates, the polls, the issues, the voters, we are in the heartland tonight. covering the week, charles babington of the associated press, nia-malika henderson of the "washington post." jim tankersley of "national journal" and jeff delaney of the "new york times." >> this is a special election 2012 edition of "washington week with gwen ifill and national journal". public funding for "washington week" in st. louis" is provided
. medicare, 16 points up. taxes, 10 point up. immigration, 5 points up. foreign policy, 13 points up. so he is outpolling him by a significant number and in most cases, double digits on substantive issues. >> look, this is not at this point just about who you want to sit down with for a casual evening. >> right. >> this is who you want sitting behind the desk in the oval office deciding whether to voucherize medicare, raise taxes on the middle class, privatize social security. and krystal is right, romney had to move far to the right but having watched that tape, that's where is he comfortable. that's the best and easiest performance that i've seen him give. of course, his worst performance, too. i think people have figured him out. i think the ryan pick helped him figure it out. we still have the debates, the romney campaign inexplicably is raising their expectations. it's not really inexplicable. there's a reason for it. they've got a lot of wavering supporters and some of the super pacs they've got to say just wait for those debates on october 3rd. >> krystal, wanted to cut mr. romney so
of the reasons why for instance we have gasoline tax. because gasoline tax pays for the the roads. i believe that's probably the best principle overall to deal with the questions and post office. >> claire mccaskill if >> i'm going to try to quote todd akin exactly on this. he said, we can keep raising the prices, if they get too high, the private sector can take over. i disagree. it is in the constitution. we have had the finest and the most reliable and most comprehensive postal service in the world. they have cut billions in expenses over the last several years. they have shrunk their woforce. what they've been required to do is prefund their pensions and healthcare for 75 years. no one in the private sector is required to prefund their pensions and healthcare for 75 years. no one in the governmental sector except the post office is required to do that. it's got them into a cash flow problem. we have to uncuff them and allow them to be entrepreneurial when it comes to the growth area postal service. i will tell you, mr. miller, you know this and many in this audience know this, a rural post of
not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks onising taxes will help growhe >>no. >> ryan's expression back there when he looks over at portman, kind of intriguing. it would be curious what a thought bubble would be going on over there. but it's a little bitf a change for romney. est rsi t n been accusing t citing increases, i thinking about the health care law, et cetera. a romney adviser put out a memo yesterday explaining how capital gains are taxed. as they say, if you're explaining how capital gains are taxed, not jt calling for different ways ofowering th, ifou sein to explain it, you're losing. romney has also tried to make china a boogeyman and he did it again in ohio yesterday. >> that when people cheat, that kills jobs. china has cheated. i willot allow that to continue. [ cheers a applause ] >> this is one issue where romney has tried to go on the offense with china since he got on the campaign and frafrmgly the obama campaign has been on the defensive about it which is why when obama is
yesterday that raised some eyebrows, sounded political when she was talking about taxes. >> that's right. secretary making a speech to the clinton global initiative and she was talking about the kind of wealthy around the world. one of her things is that people are not paying enough taxes. let's take a listen to how she got a little dig at mitt romney. >> one of the issues that i have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner. especially from the elite in every country. you know, i'm out of american politics, but it is a fact that around the world, the elites of every country are making money. there are rich people everywhere. and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries. >> who is she talking about there? i mean, but -- >> that is global context there. >> exactly. she doesn't do it that often but once fwh a while the kind of inner politician in her comes out. i travelled with her to morocco in february and she also talked about president obama being re-elected. when i interviewed her, i said, hey, secretary of state not reall
is doing it again on the tax issue. he pushed the idea that the president raised taxes. here he tries to make the point using his interpretation of the supreme court ruling on obama care. >> by the way, the president has now raised taxes on the middle class as so determined by the supreme court. >> and then this week romney mangles his message by saying obama didn't raise taxes in his first term but might in his second term. >> he's got one new idea. i admit he has one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is raise taxes. >> which is it, mark? did he or didn't he or is he about to and hasn't yet? >> i will probably have a more charitable interpretation. >> your interpretation is the one we want. >> my sense is he was talking about raising marginal tax rates rather than raising any taxes. >> that's charitable, you're right. >> i will say a version of what i said before. he's not at the point where he can afford either to create distractions through loose rhetoric or to have a muddled message that doesn't give people a sense of
studies by the urban institute and other nonpolitical organizations, that say that the impact of the tax and budget cuts and your economic policies have impacted severely on certain classes of americans -- working mothers, head of households, minority groups, elderly poor. in fact, they're saying the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer under your policies. what relief can you offer to the working poor, to the minorities, and to the women head of households who have borne the brunt of these economic programs? what can you offer them in the future, in your next term? >> well, some of those facts and figures just don't stand up. yes, there has been an increase in poverty, but it is a lower rate of increase than it was in the preceding years before we got here. it has begun to decline, but it is still going up. on the other hand, women heads of household -- single women heads of household have -- for the first time there's been a turndown in the rate of poverty for them. we have found also in our studies that in this increase in poverty, it all had to do with their privat
the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elite in every country. you know, i'm out of american politics, but it is a fact that around the world the elite of every country are making money. there are rich people everywhere. yet, they do not contribute to the growth of their own country. >> we have to ask you about this. here's the secretary of state, who said she's not going to get involved in politics. at clinton global initiative, she says she's been talking about collecting taxes in an equitable manner, in the midst of a presidential campaign and higher taxes and the tax code. >> i've travelled to a lot of countries with the secretary in the past few months. she's talked a lot about economic diplomacy, trade. i have not heard her talk about tax collection. it is a politically charged issue. it's interesting for someone who says, i'm about foreign policy. she got a standing ovation there. >> she met with with the president of pakistan. that's a troubled relationship. what came out of it? >> that was acknowledged at the onset of the meeting saying this has
